The domer STAGE
- Chamberlains Security and Yeovil Hire Centre
Our big stage! Lots of styles of music, big sound and plenty to keep you on your feet whatever the weather!
The original stage! This is where the festival started - with just three bands... Now with 19 over the weekend, it's a great spot where you can watch some cracking music whilst enjoying a beer from the Dutch Barn Bar, or a cuppa and cake from the Tea Tent! Be ready for lots of dancing at this one.
A great fun stage, mainly for a lot of our younger bands - but not always! Check this one out for some brilliant 'you had to be there' moments and an acoustic set from one of our more well-known bands...
Lots of brilliant folk artists, some award-winning, whom many have had their music played across many national radio stations including BBC Radio 2, BBC 6 Music, BBC Introducing and others as well as being on TV shows like The Voice. They all play under the label Folkroom Records who are based in London.
Here are some of the musicians to look forward to this year, and we're really pleased to be getting some Home Farm classics back again. Timings of their sets will be posted soon: Amateur Orchestra, Amy May Ellis, Hickory Signals, Iona Fyfe, Jack Harris, Jinnwoo, Kate Stapley, Martha Bailey, Rainy Day Woman, Sincere Deceivers, Thom Ashworth, Tilly Moses, Tom Hyatt, Winterfalle
Named Avant Garde due to the variety of things on during the weekend! Ranging from fantastic acoustic sets to children's discos, children's cinema, silent discos and even burlesque dancing!
Our NEW stage, which will work alongside Anderson, will have music playing on Saturday and Sunday only. Right next to the dance tent (and only playing when Anderson isn't), we've got some great bands who will be rocking a new part of the festival site! Playing on The Place is:
